While we’ve all been surrounded by Valentine’s Day; and I did make Valentines cookies, this week my focus was a Bridal Shower High Tea for a very dear friend. It was a gift, a surprise and I’m pleased to say that she loved it. I have finally been able to unpack my decorating equipment (after 2yrs in storage!) and was very excited to retrieve my dolly varden tin just in time to create this little beauty. A very pretty, girly cake for a very pretty girly-girl.
Piece by piece, layer by layer I added strips of fondant that folded and ruffled like fabric. The fun part with this is that you can play couture designer and cake maker too. Design the dress however you like, follow a photo of the bride’s actual dress…get creative.
While this design can be adapted for princesses, Disney characters, weddings and formals; as usual, the only limit is your creativity and imagination. Happy baking,
